Using binaural microphones through a minidisc recorder plugged directly into the computer, I set the machine to record for 1 hour each morning over the course of one week in spring 2004, typically as I was about to leave for work. The sounds of an empty apartment and city outside through the open windows was the intended result. It was a bright and lovely place, high up in an early 20th century building. Strange fortune shined on the last day of recording as building maintenance came in while I was out to install new blinds, and the full event is captured.
